ABOUT THE FACULTY

Wesleyan has a faculty of over 400 intellectually dynamic teacher-scholars.  Their interests run the gamut from choreography to astronomy to volcanology, which they practice not only on campus but also at sites as far-ranging as Indian concert halls, the Hubble Space Telescope, and Argentine mountains. They invite conversation on everything from the physics of chaos to the disorder of contemporary politics.
